Turning the weight of the world

These door handles turn with the weight and heft of a grand estate’s entryway


The front door handles were one of the first items selected to finish the interiors of 181 Fremont, and are among the most exquisite.

This polished brass handle was custom-forged by Parisian artisan Daniel Podva at his studio, Série Rare, a few steps from the Seine.

Timeless materials

Details, details


A global expedition set out to source the finest materials and finishes for 181 Fremont Residences. Inside and out, every detail has been meticulously designed and considered. Classical materials used in fresh, modern ways was the objective with 181 Fremont’s luxurious interiors. The desire was to create a sense of natural comfort with the surroundings, accentuated with touches of the extraordinary.

The kitchens at 181 Fremont were designed to be as beautiful as they are functional, with Valcucine glass cabinets crafted in Italy and making their West Coast debut. Select kitchens can be hidden from sight on a whim with a set of ceruse-ebonized oak sliding panels.

No stone left unturned

The marble’s deeply rich origin story is befitting a building that rises to such great heights


From residents’ first steps into the lobby, marble provides a visual cue signaling timelessness and the finest that life has to offer. Polished Italian Calacatta Carrara marble was selected for its peerless beauty.

Let there be light

Each one is unique


The hallway sconces at 181 Fremont began as hand-drawn sketches by Orlando Diaz-Azcuy, inspired by a bird’s nest and the soft welcoming light cast on the front stoop of his childhood home. From his drawings, a lighting firm rendered the sconces in virtual reality, then brought them to their fully illuminated life.

Since the sconces were based on drawings and intricate natural shapes, it required an artisanal manufacturing process to create each shade. Each twig was individually sculpted, hand-dipped in paint, then in sand for an added layer of natural texture. Lastly, they were repainted one by one and set in place. As a result, each sconce is unique.
